We used easyJet to get to Sofia, takes around 3 hours from the U.K, you just need to remember that when you go the time difference is 2 hours ahead so if you get an early flight from the U.K you will arrive around lunch time :)

I must admit this is the furthest east i have been in Europe and i didnt really know what to expect, i had seen some photos of Sofia and it looked beautiful :) however as how the people are there, and whether it was safe for a girl to be travelling just with her boyfriend is another matter. (some places i have been, i have had hassle as having blonde hair.) In Bulgaria though there are none of these problems, i must say women dress very similar to the U.K and in the evening they all get dressed up too so no worries about taking your skirts/dresses :)

When you arrive into Sofia airport, when looking for a taxi be wise.

... my boyfriend just walked outside and saw a bloke who said he was a taxi, i had to follow him obviously however i had noticed there was an O.K taxi desk in the airport, this wouldn't have ripped us off. Instead we got in this taxi which cost us 30 Lev compared to the 5 Lev we paid on the way back....


Sofia, i thought personally was quite small for a city, you can walk around the city, no need for buses or taxis, we did get a taxi back to our hotel though as we stayed a way out of the city.

We went on a Monday and there were many markets going on it the city, so i assume that they run all the time :) overall you don't need long to look round the city, we did it all in a day.

I would recommend that you go to Sofia, however perhaps go for a day in the city then go either skiing or to the beach?
